Dynamic Phrasing: A Musical Approach to Keyboard Percussion

  • thumbnail for Peter Martin
  • The clinic focuses on the ways to develop lyricism on percussion instruments. Tone production and the tools for expression on keyboards are compared and contrasted with other instrumental families to gain a deeper understanding of both the advantages and limitations of percussion instruments. Performance techniques in intermediate level keyboard music are discussed that can be easily adapted throughout the percussionists’ repertoire, turning an average performance into an artistic one.
